Well, this one was just ok. Pured a coppery-amber, very clear, but also a little too bubbly for my tastes. Not much aroma, a little skunk. Kinda sweet, kinda bitter, nothing really exciting as far as I can tell. Tastes a little worse as it sits longer and warms up. Drink it fast and cold in a pinch.

This beer is not of my favorite style, but I find that I like it pretty well. It’s medium bodied and very well balanced and eminently drinkable. I think it’s better than what folks give it credit for.

12 oz bottle from Trader Joe’s just outside of Chicago. Pours with a big head, copper in color. Surprisingly good for a grocery store beer. Very "toasted wheaty" in flavor, nice palate that lingers. Part of a "build your own" sampler, but if it’s cheap, it would be worth a six.

poured a clear light copper with visible carbonation and average head. horse blanket aroma with a fairly simple but balanced malt and hops flavor. another decent discount tj beer.

irishsnake (355) - Oakland, California, USA - FEB 3, 2005
pours a very pretty deep-gold/amber with alot of CO2 that leads to a decent size head that retains and laces poorly. aroma is mostly of malt, with the caramel pushing a bit in front of some biscuity toast. flavor is very clean and smooth-some real juicy maltiness up front, finished with a pleasing wack of hop flavor (spicy) and bitterness. pretty nice, and pretty drinkable-and easily worth $4.99.

This tasted like a really fine German lager, along the lines of Hacker Pshorre Munich or Wiehenstephaner’s original. Very crisp and clean and brewed with the German purity law. Slightly nutty in flavor. Good stuff if not quite as good as their wheat

spilledpint (346) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - JUN 13, 2012
12 oz. bottle from Trader Joe’s Chapel Hill Ar: Aroma is a bit off. Standard caramelly malt aromas but laced with an odd sourish vinegary/metallic note. Neither expected nor desirable. Ap:Good looking beer. Pours a clear amber with a frothy 1" head that leaves really nice lacing. T: Fairly sweet malty flavors of caramel and bread dough. Finish is mildly bittered but oddly metallic. P: Medium body, a bit sticky. Carbonation seems slightly above average. O: Strong presence of a couple of off-flavors. Along with the Bock, the weakest of the $1 TJ’s offerings that I’ve had.

NicerInPerson (337) - North of Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - FEB 5, 2007
The aroma was nutty and malty with a caramel aspect which was quite prominent. Vienna and Munich malts stood out and seemed a bit stronger than found in most Vienna Lagers. A very light haze was in the amber beer with a fleeting head. The flavor was malty and nutty with a Munich/Vienna malt toasty character. The flavor was just edging toward sweet, but was not cloying. The body was medium and the carbonation level was just below moderate. An ok Vienna, but with just a bit too much malt character. 12 ounce bottle (92 cents).

Clear light amber, small head. Malty aroma, caramel with a hint of chocolate. Malty and smooth, nutty, vanilla, caramel. Not too shabby.
